About once a year I scheme about how I am finally going to decorate our bedroom. Gene and I have been married for 18 years and the bedroom is still a miss match collection of stuff. Oh sure, I get an inspiration and window shop like crazy for a while but I never settle on anything. We do have a Steve Hanks watercolor print, which I love, that Gene gave me many moons ago. I pull colors from it when I get the itch to re-decorate.
I think the bedspread is the cornerstone of the bedroom foundation. I just can't decide what works for both of us. I am drawn to the white fluffy "clouds", that is what we call our down comforter, and the light blues and greens from our Steve Hanks picture. I especially love a large geometric floral print. Gene likes the dark rich colors. When I think of a bedroom, I think of rest and relaxation and Gene thinks... well, uhhmm how to I say it, of other things.
I know part of my issue is that I am thrifty. I only want natural fibers on a polyester budget. Then I run across pictures like these on a blog (I would totally give the blog credit if I could remember the name)and the desire begins again and then I give up. So we have the same old down comforter and light green fuzzy blanket, which probably came from Wally World, that we have had for a couple of years. It is comfortable and warm and works for now.
